I didn't realize but it looks like you need an invitation from a member. I've talked to the group owner and everyone is welcome so anyone who is interested just pm me with contact details and I'll arrange.

Hi all.
We are looking at a purchase in Ofena. We will be visiting to tkae a look in July 2011. Would be nice to get an expat view of Ofena. Also some obvious questions:
What are the chief (negative) issues/pitfalls you've found with buying?
Anybody used housearounditaly ? Trustworthy?
Any recommendations for local solicitors?
<snip>
Any Ofenites that would be interested in meeting for a coffee when we are there?
cheers
Andy & Katy (NZ)

Anybody have a house they would like to rent for a couple of weeks in July?

Why Ofena? You realize it's in an earthquake zone so great care must be taken when purchasing to ensure the house is up to code or you are willing to spend the money to bring it up to code. Housearounditaly seem to know what they are doing but their execution leaves much to be desired. You could save a lot of money and probably get a better deal by working with a local to find a place. You don't need a lawyer as the legalities are handled by a notary. Buying is fairly straight forward but the process can take a bit of time. Check some of the old posts on this forum under Ofena to get a sense of some of the pitfalls. Sent me a private message and I will give you some contacts for locals and expats!

Thanks Barry.
Can't find how to send a private message. Can you send one to me so that I can reply? Thanks
